GURGAON: Two women died while five others sustained injuries after a speeding truck collided with a car on the Karawal-Sohna Road on Friday night.
The accident happened near the Karanki turn at around 7.30pm. The women succumbed to their injuries in the hospital, while the injured victims are currently receiving treatment at a private healthcare facility in Gurgaon.
The driver of the truck, responsible for the collision, fled the scene following the accident, as reported by the police.
According to the complaint lodged by Inderpal, a resident of Dohla village near Sohna, the incident occurred while they were returning in their car from Bhadak village in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh district. The car was occupied by seven individuals, including a one-and-a-half-year-old child, at the time of the collision.
Inderpal, who was in the car with his brother Hariom behind the wheel, recounted the events, stating that as they approached the Karanki turn, a speeding canter (truck) originating from Harchandpur village crashed into their car. The impact caused their vehicle to be dragged about 50 meters. While Inderpal sustained minor injuries, the others suffered critical injuries. The canter driver promptly fled the scene along with his vehicle, as stated in Inderpal’s complaint.
Upon notification, a police team arrived at the scene and shifted the injured victims to the Civil Hospital in Sohna.
One of the women could not be saved and was declared dead at the hospital. The remaining injured individuals were referred to a private hospital for treatment, where another woman lost her life during the course of medical intervention, as per the details provided in the complaint.
Inderpal, deeply affected by the accident, emphasized that the collision was a result of the canter driver’s negligence, urging appropriate action against the responsible individual.
In response to Inderpal’s complaint, an FIR (First Information Report) was lodged against the unidentified driver under sections 279 (pertaining to rash driving), 337 (relating to causing harm through acts that endanger life or safety of others), and 304A (addressing death caused by negligence) of the Indian Penal Code. This FIR was registered at the Sohna police station on the very day of the incident, Friday.
The bodies of the deceased have been released to their respective family members after post-mortem procedures, according to the police. Law enforcement authorities are actively working to apprehend the truck driver who fled the scene.
